My Keenen family tree are as follows (w/ direct lineage only):

Edward Keenan
+ Unknown

James Keenan, 11 Sep 1777 - 27 Sep 1837
+ Anna Maria (or Mary) Sheneman, 30 Mar 1786 - 1 Jun 1871

Benjamin Keenan, ca 1805 - 5 Jun 1882
+ Mary , 28 Dec 1804 - 29 Nov 1879

Benjamin F. Keenen, 27 Dec 1837 - 23 Mar 1918
+ Barbara Glauner, 13 Jul 1844 - 27 Jan 1916

Newton B. Keenen, 15 Aug 1879 - 1 Sep 1972
+ Ella O. Kauffman, 29 Dec 1879 - Feb 1943

Ivy N. Keenen, 19 Sep 1920 - 12 Mar 2006
+ Karl R. Keller, 7 Mar 1918 - 16 Oct 1973

As you can see, my Keenen line stops with my grandmother. She married and had my mother.

Places lived:
Edward - Vincent Twp, Chester Co PA
James - West Nantmill Twp, Chester Co PA
Benjamin Sr - Reading, Berks Co PA
Benjamin Jr - Salisbury Twp, Lancaster Co PA
Newton - Manheim Twp, Lancaster Co PA
Ivy - Primarily Lancaster Twp, Lancaster Co PA, then East Lampeter Twp, Lancaster Co PA

Benjamin F. Keenen was born in Lancaster Co PA and left in Salisbury Twp, Lancaster Co PA to apprentice to a blacksmith in that twp. is place with Benjamin & Mary can be validated by looking at the 1850 census for Lancaster City, pg 293, roll 788. The last name looks like Keiman, but should have been written as Keenan. This family shows up again in 1860, Reading, pg 989, roll 1077. Each person in the family is in the exact same place as the census before and 10 years older, obviously, give or take a few years It is the same family though. Errors were made only regarding the last name and place of birth.

If anyone is connected to any of those in my line, please contribute to this board or make mention of your own Keenen line.
My email is in the even that anyone would like to add anything regarding my line or discuss potential mutual ancestors.
